Already happened in 1989 to a degree in Canada, a geomagnetic storm caused a power grid failure, stands to reason that a bigger storm could cause more disruption now we are more reliant on technology.

I can remember talking about this in PCA's "Lounge" years ago while having a discussion on meteorites causing problems to satellites ( the odd one may get struck and knocked out due to plasma strikes).

Now I feel Geeky !

to be outside the supermarket when it opens in the morning - there's bound to be a run on creme fraiche.

We do so enjoy our scares... What's the chances of the Inland Revenue losing all their records?

"there's bound to be a run on creme fraiche."

I have a feeling you are not taking this seriously.

It is likely to be every bit as serious as the Millennium Bug.

Ie a Storm in a teacup- perhaps may be.

All you have to do is remove a door and use it as a shield. This is the advice given out in the 1960's to protect you from a 50 megaton device exploded at 2000 feet above your head. Not sure if B&Q doors are made to this standard .
